Is this possible? I know Skype has screen sharing for video calling, but I cannot start a video call without a webcam. Just curious if there was a way to share a screen without a webcam.

Edit: I seem to be missing the "Share" menu icon, anyone else have this problem?

There is a way, I have done it many times myself. Open an IM (instant messaging) conversation with the person, then click screen share, and it will start an audio call, but no video...you can always mute the microphone on your end...

The Skype instant message window: alt text
